Age: 220 years as vampire (OFITG)
Appearance: Has pale crystal flesh, clear turquoise, and his chestnut hair falls past his collar. Cat describes him as “pretty” in OFITG.
Ian met Bones, Spade and Timothy on a convict ship named the Alexander bound for the New South Wales penal colonies in 1788. After a few months at the colony, Ian managed to escape. Then after almost a year, Ian returned with natives and at least two other vampires who killed the guards and the rest of the prisoners except Timothy, Spade and Bones. In his absence, Ian had been changed to vampire and changed Bones that night against his will. Though the three friends were changed, only one asked for it. Timothy wanted what Ian offered. Spade and Bones did not. Ian had them changed anyway because he thought they would thank him later. In OFITG, he said that his life before being changed were not good for anything but poverty and misery. He describes London as a sewage in the late 1700s. Along with siring Bones, Ian is also sire of Cat’s father, Maximillian.

Quotes from Ian:
"Why, Cat you seem edgy. You're still not cross at me over kidnapping your ex-boyfriend last summer, are you?" From At Graves End
"Why would they be cross with me? I am owed no small amount of gratitude. If I hadn't changed Max, then there wouldn't be a you."From At Graves End
"Yet he also taught Cat how to fight, making her stronger, faster and deadlier. Without that, do you even think she'd still be alive? Futhermore didn't he just save her life and yours recently? Are you telling me thats worth more then your parents?" "From At Graves End
"If we're supposed to wait outside in the cold while the two of you snog in the car, I'd just as soon flown home."
"Do you know why I am? Because for once, you asked for my assistance. You've never done that in all the centuries I've known you. That's why I threw in my lot with you, bloody usurping sod though you are." "From At Graves End
"By Christ, Crispin, I don't know what got into me. I had no cause to rail you like that. Forgive me, both of you." From At Graves End
"And angels fly out of my arse when I fart." From First Drop of Crimson
"I know I'm a rotten bastard, but there are four people in my world I'd never see come to harm, even at the cost of my own life. Two of them are here, yet neither of them trusts me. Believe me even ruthless sods like me can be hurt by that." From First Drop of Crimson
"I'll own what I am, but don't label me what I'm not when it comes to either of you." From First Drop of Crimson
"Before you go,mate,turn on the telly. Something raunchy too. Think I'll rub off one before I go to sleep" From First Drop of Crimson

SCENES with Ian
Ian was next, hugging Bones with a chuckle that sounded hoarse with emotion. "Bloody wanker, your wife should roast your arse for this dastardly stunt!"
Bones clapped him on the back. " You're still here, mate. Careful-you're in danger of becoming an honorable man." From At Graves End
Ian knelt on the ground, his chestnut hair making him easily distinguishable even from behind. His shoulders shook. From At Graves End
“Luscious, aren't I, poppet? Go on, stare. I don’t mind.”
“You look like a Dracula porn movie reject”
“Let’s not speak of him. Like the devil, Vlad might appear if we do.” (conversation between Denise & Ian)" First Drop of Crimson
This is how Jeaniene Frost pictures Ian; I got this info from Frost Light Journal Entry In a frost_light journal entry, Jeaniene said she pictured Ian as a combination of Samuel Le Bihan (specifically, from BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF) and Colin Farrell. “Samuel has Ian’s dangerous sexiness and Colin has more of Ian’s really gorgeous looks.” Picture both actors with auburn hair.
